Arrogant, brooding, domineering, possessive, dangerously handsome, and a playboy. These are all of the characteristics on Rebecca Gellar’s Run-Like-Hell list for men, but she’s about to meet the man who’s the epitome of these and more… 

After breaking off her engagement with Hollywood actor Miles Storm, Rebecca is ready for a change of scenery in her life and in her bed. So when the opportunity to work for StoneHaven Publishing, one of New York City’s most respectable publishing empires presents itself, Rebecca doesn’t hesitate moving to the Big Apple. 

Convinced she can show the owner of StoneHaven Publishing that she has the “right stuff,” Rebecca agrees to a six month trial as the personal assistant to the owner’s playboy son, Nicholas StoneHaven. This is her big chance. If she can just get through these six months without strangling Nicholas with his Armani tie, she’ll be okay – easier said than done. Nicholas is the last person Rebecca thought she’d find herself pining for, especially when he hits every category under her list. 

Get ready for a battle of the sexes… 

*This novel includes all three volumes combined.




4.5 run-like-hell STARS!!!

I’m not a huge fan of serials for two main reasons. One – they are generally so short, it’s just a taste. A tease, really. And, two – I usually love it and have to wait… I’m very impatient. But this box set allowed me to read them all consecutively – like a full novel. And I loved it!!!  The characters, the story line, the development of both. A definite recommendation!!  This review will consist my feeling and thoughts of the set as a whole. Don’t worry, there are no spoilers here. 

First we have Rebecca. She was a woman scorned and off to follow her dreams of living and working in NYC.  While in the plane from L.A., she found herself falling into the lap of a delicious man while chasing her purse into first class.  That was the thing about reading Rebecca’s character. She was intelligent, determined, snarky, witty, and at times – funny. She described herself as shy and curvy. I loved her from the second she found her actor boyfriend cheating on her – in their bed.  Now, She couldn’t stop thinking about her encounter with the yummy plane-man.  When she went to her interview one in NYC and found that she was now the assistant to the man from the plane – things get amazing!!

“The Run-Like-Hell List:  I, Rebecca Gellar, view that under no circumstances will I fuck sleep with any man especially Nicholas who falls under these:
Dangerously handsome.

Nicholas was the epitome of everything on Rebecca’s list. One of the things I adored about the writing and this author, was her use of dual POV. Mostly in Rebecca’s voice but there are some great moments peppered in when I got the true sense of who Nicholas was. And every dangerously handsome, arrogant, brooding, domineering, possessive, play-boy has a reason to the madness. He definitely did. And his story was hauntingly poetic. Even, Rebecca would catch a glimpse of a different side to him.

“… but for the first time, I experienced a side of him I hadn’t imagined existed. He was vulnerable.”

Things between them become hot, intense, and all-consuming for both of them. But … there are many things that are in the way. Ooh I want to tell you!  Just know that this book/serial is unputdownable! I cautiously ate up every word, loving it. As I sat thinking back, when it was over, well – it was even better!!  A must read for any fans of sexy reads with twists!!
